We’re $13 trillion in debt and “have nothing to show for it.”

August 25, 2010

At a town hall meeting in Greeley, Colo. last Saturday, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) said plainly what’s been on Americans’ minds for months now: we’re $13 trillion in debt and “have nothing to show for it.” Sen. Bennet also pointed out this record spending has done nothing to create new jobs.

A new Reuters poll shows Sen. Bennet’s concern is, politically-speaking, right on target. Reuters explains, “Unemployment and government spending topped voters’ economic concerns, with 72 percent and 67 percent of respondents saying they were very worried over those issues respectively.”

    We’ve got plenty to show for it, the best paid military in the world with top notch equipment largely suited for the cold war. We’ve also got the Homeland security administration, TSA, border patrol and a number of “new” organizations well heeled and prepped to spend billions on our security. We’ve got more intelligence organizations, the previous ones couldn’t work together so we added to it.

    But here’s the punch line: The citizens are spending billions of their after tax income on foreign products, the largest expense being foreign autos. There’s more money going out of the country than there is in which equates to no jobs for Americans, less tax dollars to pay the bill. Last but not least, the only way to shore up research, development and manufacturing so that we don’t give it all away is for the government to do it through tax dollars. WAKE UP, IT’S THE PEOPLES FAULT JUST AS MUCH AS THE GOVERNMENT.
